Early Childhood Teacher Preparation: Using the Co-Teaching Model  [PDF]
Barbara F. Hartigan
Creative Education (CE) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/ce.2014.58076

Previous research shows that co-teaching during the student teaching practicum should be the model used by colleges and universities. This researcher used an open-ended questionnaire, a Likert-type scale survey, and individual conferences to ascertain teacher candidates’, cooperating teachers’, and university supervisors’ perceptions of the co-teaching model’s benefits, or lack thereof. The twenty-nine student teachers surveyed represent a private university and earned degrees in early childhood special education. The teacher candidates, cooperating teachers, and university supervisors are hired by the university and are experts in the aforementioned field of education. Findings reveal that pre-teacher candidates, university supervisors, and cooperating teachers all believe that mentoring during student teaching using the co-teaching model is beneficial for both the pre-teacher candidates and students in the classroom if proper professional development is offered and continuous and ongoing reflection and planning take place.

Examining Nutritional Practices and Developmental Progress of Preschoolers  [PDF]
Barbara F. Hartigan, Joanna C. Macca
Creative Education (CE) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/ce.2015.63036
Abstract: This teacher research was conducted to examine how nutrition is related to the developmental progress of preschool children. A quantitative correlational design was undertaken using researcher administered student, parent and teacher questionnaires to determine the strength of the relationship between healthy eating habits and achievement of appropriate developmental milestones of preschool children. Six students, who were four and five years old, were chosen to participate based on parental consent, researcher observation, and teacher recommendation. Three males and females were selected with varying racial backgrounds. Students completed an activity-based literacy assessment of knowledge about nutrition and “what it means to be healthy.” Parents and teachers completed a survey discussing the children’s eating habits. Teachers also completed a developmental checklist for four- and five-year-olds for each student. Students were then ranked by three different categories: knowledge of nutrition; personal health; and development. Results of the study were inconclusive; however, slight correlations were seen.
Global Health Initiatives and aid effectiveness: insights from a Ugandan case study
Valeria Oliveira Cruz, Barbara McPake
Globalization and Health , 2011, DOI: 10.1186/1744-8603-7-20
Abstract: The study adopted a qualitative and case study approach to investigate the governance of aid transactions in Uganda. Data sources included documentary review, in-depth and semi-structured interviews and observation of meetings. Agency theory guided the conceptual framework of the study.The Ugandan government had a stated preference for donor funding to be channelled through the general or sectoral budgets. Despite this preference, two large GHIs opted to allocate resources and deliver activities through projects with a disease-specific approach. The mixed motives of contributor country governments, recipient country governments and GHI executives produced incentive regimes in conflict between different aid mechanisms.Notwithstanding attempts to align and harmonize donor activities, the interests and motives of the various actors (GHIs and different parts of the government) undermine such efforts.Over the past decade, the international aid community has shown greater concern with improving aid effectiveness. In spite of historical gains in health status, challenges still abounded: in 1998, the infant mortality rate (IMR) in Africa was still 91 per thousand, more than four times the rate for Europe [1]; in 2006, over 3.3 billion people worldwide were at risk of malaria transmission contributing to approximately 1 million deaths each year [2]; and the estimated number of individuals living with HIV/AIDS by 2001 in Sub-Saharan Africa was 28.5 million. The failure to effectively deliver available interventions largely accounts for the excess mortality among the poor [3]. The international aid community thus sought for new "ways of doing business" that could tackle the high burden of disease in the low-income world by expanding access to interventions such as vaccines, insecticide treated bed nets, and anti-retroviral therapy. A range of targets, agreements, and partnerships emerged. Among these were the Roll Back Malaria Partnership established in 1998, the Millennium De
The complexity of quantum spin systems on a two-dimensional square lattice
Roberto Oliveira,Barbara M. Terhal
Physics , 2005,
Abstract: The problem 2-LOCAL HAMILTONIAN has been shown to be complete for the quantum computational class QMA, see quant-ph/0406180. In this paper we show that this important problem remains QMA-complete when the interactions of the 2-local Hamiltonian are between qubits on a two-dimensional (2-D) square lattice. Our results are partially derived with novel perturbation gadgets that employ mediator qubits which allow us to manipulate k-local interactions. As a side result, we obtain that quantum adiabatic computation using 2-local interactions restricted to a 2-D square lattice is equivalent to the circuit model of quantum computation. Our perturbation method also shows how any stabilizer space associated with a k-local stabilizer (for constant k) can be generated as an approximate ground-space of a 2-local Hamiltonian.

Abstract: a 22 year-old horse developed cholelithiasis with marked atrophy of the right lateral hepatic lobe. the horse had a history of intermittent colic since three years of age, and one of the first episodes of colic was associated with icterus. the size of the right lateral hepatic lobe was extremely reduced. there was a large choledocholith in the common hepatic duct, and several hepatoliths and choleliths in the intra- and extra-hepatic billiary ducts. microscopically, there was severe atrophy of the right lobe with diffuse proliferation of connective tissue and billiary ducts. the left lateral lobe had peri-portal fibrosis with proliferation of billiary ducts, and billiary stasis. chemical analysis of the calculi detected amorphous and triple phosphate, bilirubin, calcium, and iron.
